Ubuntu 12.04 - monitor configuration error

Asked by Nate on 2012-05-15

To start out this is not something keeping me from doing anything, I would just like to fix it. The error started after connecting a second monitor. I know it is something I did, and most likely from the nvidia manager. I use it to change monitor settings since Ubuntu's default display manager doesn't properly detect all monitors. Anyways, after each change of monitor setting's I would save the configuration so it would be recognized on the next log in (it works), but I get an error report on log in. I have tried changing back to the default settings and saving it, but I still get the same error report with or without the second monitor. Just wondering if someone knows how to fix this.

my laptop specs: http://www.msimobile.com/level3_productpage.aspx?id=222

Thanks!

Every time I log in I get an error report of the following:

"Could not apply the stored configurations for monitors

Read the command I gave, then read your output. Pay particular attention to the FIRST line of your output...

I got it! I changed the setting in the nvidia manager from auto res and auto hz to what it should be. The error is gone now!

Thanks for the help
